Question about Sony Mavica MVC-FD200 Digital Camera
MY MAVICA WILL NOT FOCUS, AND WHEN I ZOOM IN TO MAKE THE PICTURE SHARPER THE PICTURE IS STILL BLURRY.
Do yopu remember if the front (lens) area received a hit, even though with low force?
I am asking because in most MVC-FD cameras I opened to fix them about the same focus problem, I did find that an internal bracket that holds the lens assembly, it was bent due to an external force or hit in the front.
The bent bracket really was not the problem. The reason of the focus issue was that when the bracket was bent, the flat ribbon cable of the lens was pressed against a mounting screw, causing that the flat ribbon cable was damaged (punctured) affecting 2-3 traces of it, and preventing the lens to operate properly.
Repairing such problem requires to either replace the damaged flat ribbon cable, or the whole lens assembly.
You can get your hands in a broken camera with good lens assembly, and swap the parts.
